    Perfect harmony between Bruichladdich and the Manzanilla Sherry
    • Nose
      Fine citrus fruits followed by the scent of a buttercakes. Now there are also pureed apples mixed with light nut notes
    • Taste
      Contrast it starts with citrus notes and light apple flavor. Nut and wood notes join
    • Finish
      The finish is relatively short. Wood notes become a little bit stronger, as soon as they fade away nice salty notes appear on the side of the tongue.

    1998/2008 ‘Manzanilla’
    (46%, OB, 6,000 bottles)

    It’s to be noted that Bruichladdich
    worked only for a few weeks in 1998,
    and had been silent for a few years
    before and then until 2001 again.Colour:
    gold. Nose: this is very, very winey
    at first nosing but it’s in
    no way an ‘added’ vinosity.
    Everything is very coherent in there,
    the notes of bitter oranges and very
    ripe melons quickly leaving room for
    drier aromas such as apple peelings,
    walnut liqueur, almond milk, marzipan
    and café latte. Gets fresher
    and fresher after that, sort of purer
    and cleaner, mostly on apple juice.
    Also hints of stout and just a very
    faint rubber (inner tube, not unpleasant
    at all) as well as touches of herbal
    tea (maybe rosehip.) Not exactly a
    sherry monster on the nose, the spirit
    and Manzanilla work very well together
    I think. Mouth: this is even sweeter
    than on the nose – so much for
    dry sherry. A lot of orange marmalade,
    plum jam and crème brûlée
    with notes of walnuts again and something
    pleasantly ‘nervous’ and
    slightly prickly (icing sugar) playing
    with your tongue. Finish: medium long,
    clean, a little maltier and toastier.
    Hints of peat. Comments: very, very
    good. Let’s hope they’ve
    still got some casks from these 1998
    distillations. SGP:632 –
